any of numerous climbing birds of the family Picidae, having a hard, chisel like bill that it hammers repeatedly into wood in search of insects, stiff tail feathers to assist in climbing, and usually more or less boldly patterned plumage.

And this guy was tap-tap-tapping at my windows yesterday during the rain storm guess he just wanted in.

Been going through some old pictures and came across this one, for some reason we had these two swans that would hang out in our back yard then all of a sudden they disappeared but I enjoyed them while they were here.

What an ornate woodpecker. We have the huge, dark charcoal ones with the red heads that are dumb enough to hammer away at the drain pipes and the chimneys. Fun to watch, though.

How cute that he was ticking on your window! Beautiful bird!
